Glen Hamilton?

Gentleman by that name stopped into my GC today and we chatted for almost an hour. SUPER nice guy that claimed to have drummed for Pat Benatar back in the day. I picked his brain for the entire time...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

My problem is that if I bring drinks onstage, I always manage to accidentally kick over one of them by the end of the set. Also I barely ever have time to take a sip of booze in between songs...

Re: Stolen gear prevention tool?

That's cool!

I've heard about guys that hide a smartphone in their cases or inside the bass drum so if it gets stolen they can gps locate their stuff.

Re: A dumb customer?

No dumb is me doing dishes and accidentally rinsing my phone off under the faucet.

I am not a smart man.

I hadn't heard about Justin haha. I was completely floored by Eric though. Just the nicest guy and took time to talk about Ludwig drums with me (he said that the Vistalites are the most versatile...

Re: A dumb customer?

Fortunately 99.9% of customers are really good. I expected to be dealing with stuff like that a lot in the drum retail business, but it seems like most people out there buy and return with the best...

Re: Playing others' kits

I was always really against using other people's gear (or them using mine). It took a lot of paychecks to get everything put together, and I was definitely a prima donna about it for years.

Re: Stage Banter

I love it if it's pulled off right. For me it's a gamble, but for some guys are a riot to listen to.

I always loved Hendrix's banter at Monterey Pop, calling Noel Redding "Queen Bee" and Mitch...

Re: Stage Etiquette

Question:

When your set is finished, is it kosher to take the drum mic's off yourself? I've always done this (we practice our load in/off like a pit-stop) but always wondered what the sound guy...

The Bass Pedal: Taking our jobs away

If there was an internet forum dating back to the early 1900's, would percussionists be venting over their displeasure of the bass drum pedal? The way I see it, that single invention allowed just one...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Also, Hip-hop and rap isn't going anywhere. To discredit it is to completely discredit an entire culture of artists. Like the article said, the genre has 40 years of prominent musicians and producers...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Rock n' roll isn't over. Indie rock and psych rock are huge right now, and both are just rock n' roll with a different genre label... Still the same instrumentation, still the same rock n' roll...

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Sounds to me like you're as unversed with metal and rock as many others are with jazz.

Re: Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

He's going to get the vintage glass in 10,12,14,20. I think it comes with a snare. I talked to him yesterday at practice and he is ordering it this week. I too am really curious. From what I've read,...

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

I stand corrected.

I'd like to track down a 14x8 or something to tune down and get the snom thing going permanently.

:P



That's even better. Guess I'm going to impulse buy a 14x11 Parade...

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

This is a great idea! I followed the advice and ran a 14x5 off to my right. It was awesome because it displaced my snare hits and made everything sound much more impressive than what I was actually...

Re: Tuning with those big round bearing edges

I typically tune my reso's on my old 68' Super Classics ~ a major 3rd above the batter. Does that seem about right?

Re: Difficult band members

I won't be in a band with someone I don't like. I commit to guys because we're like minded and jam well together.

Otherwise it's just an ensemble I guess.

Re: But What To Wear?

Unless you're playing jazz in ritzy venues or it's required by the gig, lose the suit/tux.

Re: But What To Wear?

You can seriously never go wrong with some slim-ish fitting dark jeans, a good fitting v-neck, some slick shoes, and some nice sunglasses (ray bans or something). Works inside or outside.

Re: Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

Apparently he was at his wit's end and typed "how do I find Gretsch New Classics" into google and found what he was looking for.

I'm curious to hear it. I love the idea of...

Re: Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

Sorry I forgot to mention that we checked that one too.

Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

My keyboard player (also a killer drummer) is trying to hunt down a Gretsch New Classic kit. They've been discontinued though.

He wants 10" 12" 14" toms, a 6.5x14 snare, a 20" Bass drum, and...
